UPS brought presents today! The parts I ordered finally showed up. I am impressed with the delivery speed. I ordered them a week ago and here they are. I was told it would be at least two weeks. Great job Stadium Yamaha!
The parts are for the center stand and the rear fender. I also purchased a new hose that had torn in half. Some of the parts I ordered, I actually didn’t need because they came attached to the center stand or the rear fender. I guess I have extras now. I was also impressed with the low weight. I expected the above to weigh more, but it was only 5lbs including the box.
I used these tools to get everything installed:
I installed the center stand first, so the scooter would be steady while I worked on the other two items. The spring was really hard to install since it was so still. I eventually became brave and hooked one end of the spring on the top spring mount and then used the screwdriver to lever the other end down and under the centerstand spring mount. It took a couple tries, but I got it hooked.
I installed the new breather hose since my scooter came with one that was torn. It wouldn't go on at first, but a tiny bit of axle grease solved that problem. Here is the old and new:
I also installed the rear fender. I could never understand why the center stand and rear fender were removed. They are both very light weight and too handy to not have on the bike. The third mounting point for the rear fender is missing since the stock airbox was removed. I rigged something up with a ziptie until I can fabricate something out of metal. I think it will work well to keep the road spray off of the engine and the scooter.
